#AliTweets: Muhammad Ali's Most Recent Posts on Twitter
Posted by the Champ himself.
Muhammad Ali, the three-time heavyweight champion of the world and global icon, died Friday at a hospital in Phoenix. He was 74.
In 1984, the boxer was diagnosed with Parkinson’s syndrome, a disease thought to be brought on by head trauma. He retired from the ring in December 1981 with a 56-5 record and the title of the most recognizable person on Earth.
On Thursday, Ali was hospitalized for a respiratory issue as a precaution, and by Friday, his issues were serious enough to draw family members to his bedside.
His last tweet came on May 10 when he wished friend Bono a happy birthday.
Denoted by the #AliTweet hashtag, here are the boxing legend's most recent tweets.
Glad to hear of the new statue honoring Joe Frazier in Philadelphia. He was a great opponent & well deserving of this honor. #AliTweet— Muhammad Ali (@MuhammadAli) September 12, 2015
